Back from our commercial break, it's VALKYRIAN MERCS QUEST!Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/XmuisFTkDon't know what Valkyria Chronicles is? Check it out here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyria_ChroniclesYou are JAGER STURMFUHRER, leader of the fledgling mercenary company DEMONS OF RANDGRIZ. In addition to fighting Imps for money and vengeance, you have your own private mission to hunt down Karla, your former fiance who sided with the Imperials and destroyed your home.You first arrived in the Federation nation of Albion to help defend it against a possible amphibious attack. However, your boots barely hit the deck before you were assigned a mission to break up a spy ring. However, through a chain of extraordinary events, you not only smashed the spy ring apart, but also managed to capture an Imperial u-boat (mostly) intact, and figh off an Imperial amphibious invasion by defeating their leader, Belkan Knight Sir Fleisher.You've decided that it's now time to move on to greener (or at least more profitable) pastures. You and the Demons left Albion for the besieged nation of Ustio.Your first mission went well enough, routing a platoon of Imperial soldiers threatening the city of Valais' supply lines. Then you destroyed an Imperial superheavy artillery battery, taking pressure off the city's beleaguered defenders and giving them a chance to counterattack. You also took care of a personal mission for Qyburn, and in return, he's given you a new and powerful (if only experimental) weapon! You also captured an Imperial sniper who you convinced to join your cause.Currently, you're taking some R&R ahead of a major operation, so you're enjoying what little free time you have. Or, you at least were until you got news of trouble brewing.(cont)
>>25460172Who needs sleep? Certainly not MC.
>>25460172Yay! Mercs quest. Command, I had a question. I kinda came up with a little short of a hypothetical situation in which Elsa and Alek explain how they met. I wanted to write it up, but I don't want to muck up your thread.Opinion?
AHAHA finally caught another one of these!I'm loaded on energy drinks, ready to go.
>>25460239Sure, go ahead.>>25460172"Okay, what the hell is going on?" You sigh, facepalming."Well, the reports are pretty varied and vague, but it seems like there's some serious street fighting going down."You can only think of a few people in the Demons who'd get caught up in something like that."But we should be pretty close." Elizabeth adds in. "If we hurry, we can beat them there by a few minutes.">Let's go!>Eh, let the MPs handle it.>Other
>>25460359>>Let's go!got to check up on the team
>>25460172>Hang out with a friend all night>Come back home>Check 4chan and stuff>Look at time>Oh yeah Valk mercs is running toda- Ah there goes my sleep
>>25460359>Let's go!Sadly. This isn't even a question.
>>25460359>Let's go!They're our Mercs. and our responsibility if they did anything wrong.
>>25460359>Let's go!Ramirez, WHAT DID YOU DO.
>>25460359>Let's go!Who wants to bet some of our boys were being drunk idiots and got jumped by the pissed townsfolk?
>>25460359>Let's go!I'll bet five Ducats that some Demons picked a fight with the locals.
>>25460404Must be Ramirez
>>25460359>Lets go!Time for some damage control
Ok, guys, prepare to get into a fight. I think things are going to get ugly
>>25460749I really hope that our upcoming fistfight won't get us on the bad side of our employer.
>>25460749Not the anon who posted it, but if somebody's picking a fight with our Darcsens's I am perfectly ok with popping a cap in someone's foot to show them to back off.
>>25460749Only if it's a lynch mob after one of the Darcsen members of the Demons.And if it IS a lynch mob, we blam one with our sidearm to prove a point. NOBODY fucks with the Demons.
>>25460783ThisAlso a good old drunken fight is normal during time off
>>25460359You sprint down to where the commotion is apparently happening, Elizabeth following close behind. It's actually not that hard to find, considering the small crowd gathering around the mouth of an alley. "Well it looks like we found the right place." You mutter to nobody in particular. Pushing your way through the crowd, you see a melee going on in the alley with maybe fifteen or twenty people involved. You immediately see Ramirez and Brillant in the fray, which you're not quite surprised. What does surprise you is Isolde and Heloise in the mix, though it's more like Isolde shielding Heloise from the worst of the melee. You also catch glimpses of uniforms of Ustian soldiers and some of the Vergeltung crew."MPs are going to be here in two minutes, sir." Elizabeth warns you. "What's the plan?">CHARGE!>Okay, let's take out them out quickly and quietly.>Actually, we should let the MPs handle this.>Other
>>25460808...do you really want to shoot someone when the MPs are on their way? Hell, they even might be there now.
>>25460815>>Okay, let's take out them out quickly and quietly.
>>25460815>Other"RAMIREZ! BRILLANT! ISOLDE! WHAT THE *HELL* IS GOING ON ?!"
>>25460815>OtherFire a pistol shot into the air to get their attention and ask what the hell is going on.
>>25460815>Pull our sidearm out and fire it into the air
>>25460815> Other, fire shot into air.
>>25460815>>Okay, let's take out them out quickly and quietly.Flanking and knockout
>>25460858Yeah, let's do this.
>>25460815One of the few times where this is actually the best option.
>>25460841IF they're trying to out and out murder one of our people just because of the color of their hair? Yes. We are Jager Sturmfuhrer. We are known to be a fair man, until pushed. Such a barbaric display? It would PUSH us.However, it seems to be a normal brawl, so we should just resolve it in a calm manner.>>25460815>Other"SILEEEEEEEEEEEENCE!">>25460893Never fire a gun wildly into the air. It's completely unsafe.
>Discharging your weapon on a military baseShiggidy diggity.>CHARGE!
>>25460815Fire a warning shot
>>25460910You're RIGHTWe'll fire it into the air toward the water.Or at a glass or something away from the brawl.
>>25460910How about the ground then?
>>25460815>CHARGE!!!!!Hands off of our menner motherfuckers
>>25460954Probably the safest bet. We could also shoot it into the roof of a building from below, pay for the damages later.
>>25460858Supporting the warning shot.Holy shit, this is actually a good idea for once.
>>25461003>Discharging your weapon in a military base>Ever a good ideaIt's definitely in character though, I'll give it that.
>>25460815>CHARGE!>Ramirez! Suppress those Rioters with your Fists!
Even if we did fire a warning shot, can we really keep them from outright brawling again? Last I looked, we're only some mercs looking for payday. The way I see it, the best we could do is to bail out our demons and let the others keep brawling their faces out.
>>25461050Pretty sure they picked a fight with us and the based Vergeltung crew backed us up.
>>25461050The Vergletung crewmen are basically ours as well. So its us vs. the normal soldiers. We need to stop it and try to stop it happening as much as we can, if only to protect us and ours.
I have a feeling that if we have a beach episode here, it'll be a very short one as we're chased out of Ustio.
>>25460815Well, you're short on time, and just jumping into the melee isn't going to resolve the matter any faster, so you decide to go for the next best option. Sure, firing a weapon near a military base was probably a monumentally stupid idea, but you really want to break this up before the MPs arrive and start cracking skulls.Raising your pistol, you make sure not to aim it straight up in the air and instead aim up high at a brick wall. The loud BANG of your weapon rings out through the tight narrows of the alley, catching everybody's attention."WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE, SOLDIERS!??" You yell in your best impersonation of your drill instructor. It was dark, so there was a chance they could mistake you for a superior officer or something like that. "BREAK UP THIS FIGHT AND DISPERSE OR VALKRUR HELP ME I WILL END IT FOR YOU!">roll 1d20
Enter with fists flying, get our folks the fuck out, and back to base before the MPs get here.
Rolled 10>>25461168Yeah, we used up our luck on Alek.
>>25461182Yeah, the dice gods reeeeeaaally wanted that kid to get laid.
>>25461216Not that Elsa needed much encouragement.
>>25461236Eh duff, its the three first that goes towards the count.
>>25461146A few of the Ustian soldiers bolt upon hearing your angry speech. The Demons and Vergeltung crew hold their ground, however, since they recognize your voice. However, there's still quite a few Ustians holding their ground, obviously not buying your bluff."Oh yeah?" A very familiar sergeant stomps up to you. "What are you going to do about it?">Try and talk him down.>Fuck it, just hit him.>Other
>>25461267Okay.jpegLets see whats going on in this alley then
Rolled 6>>25461296>Fuck it, just hit him.
>>25461296>Fuck it, just hit him.
Rolled 8>>25461296>>Fuck it, just hit him.in the face, please
Rolled 7>>25461296"I punched out a belkan knight to stop him from invading. I hear he still hasn't woken up"
>>25461296DECK THAT ASSHOLE!

Rolled 8>>25461331and then punch him anyways
>>25461296>Fuck it, just hit him"YOU PANSY ASS BLUE FOOT TURD OF SOLDIER, YOU DON'T EVEN DESERVE THE RANK ON YOUR SLEEVE YOU COWARD SHINGLE OF A MAN"
Rolled 4>>25461296>Fuck it, just hit him.I've had enough of your disingenuous assertions.
>>25461296>>Fuck it, just hit him.Make sure it's in the face and knock him on the ground if possible. Point pistol in face.
>>25461300's alright, duff. You'll get there next time.
>>25461296>Other"I ended an invasion by a fistfight. Don't test me."
>>25461296>Fuck it, just hit him."What are you going to do about it" is a bad question to ask a mercenary captain.
>>25461296>>Try and talk him down.Whatever you make me. The MPs are coming, if you don't want to be clapped in irons or doing KP duty for the rest of the year, I suggest you clear out.
Rolled 8>>25461296You're not going to be arrested. I am.
>>25461296>>Fuck it, just hit him."I'M GOING TO GOUGE OUT YOUR EYES AND SKULL FUCK YOU MAGGOT!"
Rolled 7>>25461386is it just me, or have all the rolls so far been crappy?
Rolled 14>>25461400Oh, Oh, I know what to say:"I'm going to rip off your head and shit down your throat!"
Rolled 9>>25461407Na, I'm pretty sure it's just you
>>25461407Dice gods are tired from getting Alek laid.
>>25461296"I'm going to do this" Then headbutt
>>25461296You sigh. You REALLY don't have time for this shit. Already you can the roar of truck engines in the distance."You do realize, that I punched out a Belkan Knight, right? I hear he still hasn't woken up."You then punch him in the face.>roll 1d20
Rolled 10>>25461458here we go
Rolled 5>>25461458Take That Rapetastic Sargent!You cannot force the D, it can only be given, like the force
>>25461478FUCKS SAKE, YOU ARE LATE!
Rolled 6>>25461478>>25461458Crap. A couple of seconds would've made the difference.
Rolled 5>>25461468>>25461471>>25461473THE SCALES OF FATE HAVE TURNEDE AGAINST US BROTHERS! SUCH IS THE COST OF ALEK ACHIEVING ONE MOMENT OF PERFECT HAPPINESS!
Rolled 9>>25461502You happy now?! You got your little matchmaking through but at WHAT COST I ASK!
How about we take the blow just as the MPs arrive making us look like the victim.
>>25461485It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.
>>25461537Good lord no.
>>25461529Worth it.Well, poor Heloise might disagree, but still.
Just realized, what the hell were they fighting about?
>>25461529Totally worth it. >>25461562Leaning towards them being asstastic Darcsen haters.
>>25461562I think it's the same sergeant who tried to bribe us to hand Elsa over.
>>25461529Possibility of our friend getting laid? I think that was worth it.
>>25461579Makes sense why Heloise is there behind Isolde, then.
>>25461562A) They're still butthurt over ElsaB) They're Darcsen hatersTake your pick. Might be a mix of both. Scumbag Ustians...
>>25461562Who the hell knows? We just want them to shut up and calm down.
Rolled 4>>25461657and it's also fun punching people
Rolled 1>>25461471It's a pretty good punch, but apparently the sergeant is much tougher than you initially though, as he rebounds rather quickly and takes a shot at you. Meanwhile, the fight begins again in earnest.>roll 2d20
Rolled 2>>25461620it could be that Heliose isn't that great at CQC?
Rolled 7, 11 = 18>>25461756

>>25461756...I can only hear the sgt. trying to man up, take a swing, and gives a steve smith groan>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSP2ODvr_5MAnd everyone stops the riot to laugh at him.
Rolled 2, 8 = 10>>25461893I just hope the guy goes down. Hard.
>>25461756The sergeant throws his own punch in response but the move is so damn predictable you see it coming a mile away. You easily sidestep and the sergeant's fist passes by your face and straight into the brick wall behind you. You can hear his knuckles cracking against the brickwork and your ears are filled with his yowl of pain. An uppercut silences him and knocks him out for good.With their ringleader down, and the whistle of the MPs drawing ever closer, the Ustian soldiers decide to flee."Alright Demons, we are leaving!" You hiss at your squadmates."Pssst! Over here!" You see Elizabeth waving you over to a side alley. Apparently she had been busy while you were distracting the Ustians.Everybody makes a mad scramble into the side alley, which leads to the other side of the bock, and not a moment too soon. MPs burst into the alley behind you expecting a fight, but all they find is an unconscious sergeant.After suggesting to the Vergeltung crew to return to their ship, you turn with a hard stare to Ramirez, Brillant, Isolde, and Heloise, who are busy trying to catch their breath.>You're lucky I'm in no mood for this. Back to barracks. Now.>You all have a LOT of explaining to do.>Other
>>25461968>>You all have a LOT of explaining to do.
>>25461968>>You all have a LOT of explaining to do.So what was that all about.
>>25461968>You all have a LOT of explaining to do."Ramirez, change my mind about punishing you."
>>25461968>>Other"What started the fight, and who threw the first punch"
>>25461968 >You all have a LOT of explaining to do.
>>25461968>>OtherI don't think for a second you four started or if you did you had a good reason, but explain what the hell happened.
>>25461968>Briefing ladies.And are you guys ok?
>>25461968>You're lucky I'm in no mood for this. Back to barracks. Now.I'm guessing they were badmouthing the Demons because of the sniper.
>>25461968>>You all have a LOT of explaining to do.Yes they fucking do.
>>25462007I second this
Rolled 2, 10 = 12>>25461968>>You all have a LOT of explaining to do.
>>25461968"Were you at least winning?"
>>25461968>>You all have a LOT of explaining to do.Or in my terms "What the hell is going on?"
>>25461999>>25461968>who threw the first punchThis is kinda important. Shit talking is whatever but if it was Demons that threw the first punch. Then people will get punished for it. We cannot be having people having at it over some bullshit words.
Rolled 7, 10 = 17>>25461968what was the fight about and who threw the first punch
>>25461968>You all have a LOT of explaining to do.
>>25462010Bullshit. Everyone talks. No going soft for the ladies. They are mercs.
>>25462143Doesn't seem like us either, equal treatment.
I doubt any of them exactly started a fight though Isolde might be at risk. But the rest aren't remotely quick to throw a punch for no good reason.
>>25462208This is why we're asking what happen.
>>25461968>you all have a LOT of explaining to do
>>25461968"You all have a LOT of explaining to do." You say angrily. "I don't want to have to explain to Freyberg why my men were beating the crap out of his on their weekend! Which, by the way, very good job there, people, but still! What started the fight and who threw the first punch?!""Sir! That would be me!" Ramirez steps forwards proudly, not an ounce of regret or apology in his stance or voice. "I threw the first punch, but they started it!""Explain." You narrow your eyes."Well, as you might have expected, me and Brillant decided to go check out the local bars. Heloise wanted to tag along and we managed to rope Isolde into coming too. Seems like Heloise was hung about something, because she was just downing shot after shot and generally being mopey."You take a look at Heloise and you can see that she is indeed very drunk. Barely conscious, in fact. You suppose that's why she was largely out of the fight, necessitating Isolde's protection. "Go on.""Well, we're trying to get her to talk about what's getting her down, and then Sergeant Chucklefuck and his squad roll in. We give each other the stink eye, but we ignore each other so I think we're good for the night." Ramirez sighs. "Then we take our eyes off Heloise for a second, and next thing we know, Sergeant Chucklefuck and some of his guys are leading her on. Isolde tells them Heloise is drunk in no condition for that sort of treatment, they tell her to fuck off, and well, the rest is sorta history.">Goddamnit, Ramirez.>Good job, Ramirez.>Other
>>25462434>Good job, Ramirez.> Other ''I'd have done the same, put it out there'' Fist bump
>>25462434"Outstanding Fucking Job Ramirez."
>>25462434>>Good job, Ramirez.
>>25462434>Seems like Heloise was hung about something, because she was just downing shot after shot and generally being mopey.Oops.
>>25462434>>OtherOk, not bad, Ramirez, but I'd have suggested taking Heliose and dumping the establishment altogether.
>>25462434>Goddamnit, Ramirez.And then>Good job, Ramirez.And then,>God DAMN it, Ramirez.
>>25462467>Great job looking out for our own
>>25462434>Good Job, Ramirez.
>>25462472This seems appropriate.
>>25462434>Good job, Ramirez.Next time end the fight quicker.
>>25462434>Good job, Ramirez.
>>25462434"Good job, Ramirez but goddammit try to find another way next time...."
>Good Job, Ramirez.
>>25462434>>Good job, Ramirez.Although next time, try to avoid getting the MPs called.
>>25462434>Good job Ramirez.And Isolde... Bar hopping with Brill and Ramirez? Well enjoy the rest of your time off
>>25462499"Or at least a way that doesn't bring in the MPs."
>>25462472Agreed. Good job on the defending our squad. But next time let them take the first punch.
>>25462434...How the heck did Heloise found out so quickly?
>>25462552Clearly she was walking up/onto the U-Boat and well... there they were~
>>25462552I wonder what was bumming her out in the first place.
>>25462552Could be about the kiss, not the sex. But again, it was in an obvious place.
>>25462552>>25462570No, she literally couldn't have known that I'm pretty sure. Probably invited Alek to go with and he said no, wanna talk to the prisoner.
>>25462570ThisAs I keep saying, poor Heloise.I hope anon shows some mercy and has Jager talk to her after this.But then what were people expecting...
>>25462582>the kissOh God, she might go into a full on rage if she found out about the latter.Or a depression.
>>25462609I wasn't expect MC to make fan speculation a reality. But I hope we get a chance to talk provided nothing comes up.
>>25462594>>25462582>>25462579>>25462570>>25462552And with this, time to put on my writefag hat.Okay, so my first attempt at /tg/ writing, don’t murder me. I found it funny and thought you might like it. This is Elsa and Alek chatting with people at a shindig hosted by Jager and REDACTED. >Elsa’s view.“So how did you and Alek meet? I’ve rarely seen a couple so devoted as you two.”“Oh we met during the war.”“So many did, were you in the same unit?”“Oh, not at first, not until I joined the Demons.”“Then how did you meet? Did your units work together at some point?”*laughs* “No, not exactly. Actually when we first met I had just shot Jager twice.”“…You what?”“Oh I never told you? I met Alek while I was still fighting for the Empire. The first time we saw each other was through our scopes.”“…And you still got together?”“Oh yes, Alek, Jager and the Demons were there trying to stop me from holding up the Ustian advance. I got Jager twice but he had on extra armor for that reason. Then Alek and Tarin found my blind before I decided to move. I found him too, but I only clipped his headset, he got my shoulder. It hurt of course, but when I realized it was another sniper…” *Smiles happily*“…What happened after that? I take it they didn’t mistreat you then.”
>>25462626We got one more day and two more people to talk to before the mission starts... Who knows.
>>25462626Some of the early threads made it pretty obvious that Heloise had an interest in Alek.
>>25462639“You kissed a man you didn’t know and who had just shot you not a day before?”“Yes! It was love at first sight I tell you. On my part at least, he seemed kind of stunned really.”“I’m almost afraid to ask but how did you move from there?”“Well Alek and Jaeger came to visit me after their next mission and they decided to let me out of the sub to get some air. Jaeger suggested Alek show me his knew rifle and we take some shots together. It was a really big one, .50 caliber. I’d never shot one before so my aim was horrible, it kicked everywhere. But Alek…Alek just crawled right next to me, putting my arms in the right spots and helping me aim. Then the rifle went off and it was a perfect hit.” *shudders a bit* “It was amazing, the kick of the rifle, the smell of the sea and cordite, and Alek’s body against mine. I couldn’t help myself, I jumped him right there on the deck, in full view of the whole harbor. The rest is history.”“…”>Alek’s version.“Alek my good man, whatever did you do to get Elsa so enamored with you? I’ve never seen a girl so happy.”“Uhm, well, it’s rather embarrassing actually.”“Come on man, it can’t be that bad.”“…I shot her.”“…You what?”“I shot her. It was during the war and we went on a mission to hunt down a sniper that turned out to be her. I managed to wing her shoulder; she nearly took of my head, but got my earpiece instead.”“And she liked that?”“…The next time I saw her she was behind bars and she still managed to nearly suck out my tonsils.”“…That has got to be the weirdest first date I’ve ever heard of. I dare ask how you finally got together.”
>>25462626What fan speculation? She tried hitting on Alek before already. We even called her out on it and she basically admitted to it all flustered.
>>25462639>>25462657You couldn't wait until after the thread...
>>25462657“…We came back from a mission a few days later and Jager thought it would be a good idea if I spent some time with her. So we let her out and I showed her the new rifle Jager had gotten me. It was a big fucker, .50 cal. Elsa had never shot one before so I showed her how, put her arms in the right spot, rifle firmly against her shoulder. We hit the target and it wasn’t until then that I realized I was right up against her from showing her the rifle.”“…What happened next?”“…We had our first time together.”“You went after her on top of the sub?!”“No, she jumped me on top of the sub.”“…Holy shit.”“Yeah.”“You are one lucky bastard.”And done, Hope you found this amusing, see you later, sorry for interrupting.
>>25462671Have to sleep, sorry.
>>25462626I'm surprised you havn't expected especially after JOE RAMIREZ ONE MAN ARMY side chapter.I mean its great becase MC does it absolutely right and doesn't lay it on thick, but still with how many peopl were going on about it, how wasn't it obvious.
>>25462582Sex? Wha->just realize I miss a thread>check it outGoddamn Alek that was a pretty good time to get a 20 against a 1.
>>25462434>For clarification, Heloise knows about the kiss, but not the snoo snoo."Goddamnit, Ramirez." You shake your head. "You shouldn't start fights like that, regardless how much of an asshole that guy is.""Yes sir.""But good job for standing up for Heloise.""Yes sir.""And goddamnit, Ramirez, this is supposed to be my weekend off too!""Sorry, sir.""Anyways." You sigh. "We need to figure out what to do with Heloise here.">You three take her back to the barracks and stay there. Consider it your punishment.>You guys go ahead. I'll take her back myself.

>>25462796>>25462798>>25462801>>25462802>>25462812She's completely drunk. We should wait til she's sobered up for that.>>25462786>You three take her back to the barracks and stay there. Consider it your punishment.
>>25462786Well fuck, we dun' goofed.>You guys go ahead. I'll take her back myself. Just don't cause any more trouble.
>>25462845Doesn't matter, 'sides what else are we going to do tonight?
>>25462786>>25462845>You three take her back to the barracks and stay there. Consider it your punishment.Yeah, pretty much in agreement there.
>>25462849It wouldn't have happened if the dice gods didn't ship the two so badly. :/
>>25462845Agreed.>>25462786>>You three take her back to the barracks and stay there. Consider it your punishment.
>>25462882Apparently it was just meant to be. Though I hope our little munchkin finds another.
>>25462845Doesn't matter, not much better to do tonight>You guys go ahead. I'll take her back myself. Just don't cause any more trouble.
>You guys go ahead. I'll take her back myself. Just don't cause any more trouble.Want to make sure she is fine personally.
>You guys go ahead. I'll take her back myself. Just don't cause any more trouble.>>25462917Yeah same with me.
>>25462899It's going to be funny when she finds out that we essentially torpedoed her chances of a relationship with Alek.
>>25462947oh, fuck. That's going to get really awkward.
>>25462947Now I feel like a dick for rolling that 20
>>25462947that assumes she'd blame us for it as opposed to her lack of initiative, though she can't be blamed for that as well.... Elsa is really forward.
>>25462947Yeah, that's what really sucks. But it was what Alek wanted and Elsa just had way more initiative. We just helped him man up and show his own initiative.Still sucks for Heloise
>>25462981>>25462964>>25462979>>25462947You could have stopped this. If only you cared enough when it mattered.
>>25463034I regret nothing.
>>25463034Nonsense. The D cannot be stopped, it cannot be denied.
>>25463034Its not our fault, a shame as it is. Hel lacked initiative compared to Elsa.
>>25463034To be honest, I didn't think the 20 would do something like this. I guess with great power comes great responsibility...
>>25463073We probably should have intervened before the snoo-snoo.
>>25463034you think I had a chance to spot the harem hijink bandwagon train? I'd do little but stir up shit. I'd rather save my energy for more important struggles.
>>25463073This, I thought it would make Elsa crazily in love with him, not lose her self-control altogether.
>>25463034I honestly did not think it would go that far that quickly.
>>25463100she had self-control?
>>25463054This the D can not be denied. Though no matter what it was really alek's choice not ours who he gets with.
>>25463061>>25463092Eh don't blame ya, I didn't care enough when it mattered either. Oh well, now its damage control time, lets try and make sure Heloise doesn't go into full vengeful bitch mode, despite the whole Darcsen way and all.
>>25463122Well she didn't do anything overt until that shoot-out.>>25463123We played a major part in setting them up.
>>25463100totally wasn't expecting the smexing, either. Damnit, MC, why you do that?
She could always get together with Ramirez, one man army who can use any weapon together with the woman who can save people's dogs with a paper clip, a rubber band, and a drinking straw!
>>25462786"Alright, you guys go ahead." You sigh, no longer having the energy to be angry at them. "I'll take Heloise back myself. Just don't cause any more trouble.""Yes sir!" The three of them don't need any reminding that they've just been given a reprieve, and they quickly disappear into the night before you change your mind."You need help with her, sir?" Elizabeth asks."Nah, I got it." You say, slinging Heloise over your back in a fireman carry."I'm...really sorry about this siiiiiir." Heloise mumbles. Apparently she's sobered up a bit. At least enough to talk. "Dragged you in my personallll probleeeemsss.">Well, in this unit, your problems are my problems.>Heloise, you're drunk. Just take it easy.>Stay quiet. Let her vent.>Other
>>25463164>>Well, in this unit, your problems are my problems.Oh the irony.
>>25463164>>Stay quiet. Let her vent.She's uninhibited right now. Let's see what's bothering her.
>>25463164>Well, in this unit, your problems are my problems.
>>25463164>Stay quiet. Let her vent.
>>25463164>Stay quiet. Let her vent.If she gets quiet or something feel free to give her a few encouraging words, but otherwise just let the girl talk.Consider switching over to princess carry.
>>25463148She did a lv99 French kiss upon seeing him.>>25463164>Well, in this unit, your problems are my problems.>Heloise, you're drunk. Just take it easy.
>>25463149Because it's not often you get 2 20s in a row on the heels of an opposed critfail.
>>25463149>>25463123>>25463122>>25463120What? C'mon step it up, she used one of her demands for INTEL THAT IS MOST CERTAINLY CLASSIFIED FOR MOST GRUNTS to get a chance to FRENCH KISS our sniper. Thems a pretty clear signal meine freunde.>>25463164>Stay quiet, let her vent
>>25463148Well we stuck them close together. But if Alek didn't want to get with her he would just say no and walk off. Either way this would have happened eventually if Alek got together with her. All that 20 did was speed it up.
>>25463164>Well, in this unit, your problems are my problems.We'll we usually end up shouldering their problems anyways.
>>25463164>Fish, sea, yadda yadda
>>25463164>Heloise, you're drunk. Just take it easy.
>>25463164>Stay quiet. Let her vent.Let her get it out of her system.
>>25463164>Stay quiet. Let her vent.This is going to end in tears.
>>25463164>>Well, in this unit, your problems are my problems.>Stay quiet. Let her vent.
>>25463202Alek is...sorta spineless with stuff like this. If Elsa wasn't that aggressive, he'd have happily played the dense-harem-protagonist role.
>>25463221Not just Heloise either, poor Alek is going to feel horrible when he finds out about this,
>>25463246He won't. No one knows why Heloise's mood went down the gutter, and he's too dense/cowardly to know of it.
Well if anything, should we have Elsa, and Heloise team up for an assignment or should we let the fire die out slowly?
>>25463164>Heloise, you're drunk. Just take it easy.>>25463236>you are now picturing Elsa as a space pirate and Heloise as a princess of a space kingdom that uses trees for FTL travel
>>25463323How about helping her move past this point? There's still a few good guys left in the unit.
>>25463327and I'm imagining Tarin as a space ninja protecting the princess
>>25463327So wait, if Elsa is Ryoko, and Heloise is Ayeka, then who are Sasami, Mihoshi, and Washu?Oh god, Qyburn is Washu.Try getting THAT mental image out of your head.
>>25463236True. But if he really didn't want to I think he would just say no. Just because he doesn't really show spinelessness he shows a inferiority complex. Only difference really is that Elsa was aggressive enough to get his attention and so blatant it would be impossible not to notice. So either way as long as he was around her this would have happened eventually.
>>25463408Which we allowed.Gleefully.Goddammit, crits are not supposed to make you feel like a scumbag.
>>25463408simply wasn't expecting this to happen so SOON.
>>25463396I have but one word to express what I felt at reading that. Pic related.
>>25463396then who is jagger?
>>25463437>>25463436>>25463408Refer to previous post>>25463197Step it up senpai.
It is done,comrades. Lets get over it.
>>25463463This for fucks sake. Drop it already.
>>25463460gene starwind I know thats from outlaw star but I see can see him as gene
>>25463460Isn't it obvious?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIHmwdhm52s
>tfw Elsa was only interested in Alek's skill and her first impression of him and dumps him later because he's nothing like what she wants in a partner or expected.It would be a pretty realistic turn of events, honestly.Also, I'm actually glad for this turn of events. Romance is too often just thrown in for the fuck of it or at the end and it becomes all sunshine and rainbows. It's nice to see some unrequited love, consequences, and have the romance add some actual dynamism to the story.
>>25463498motherfucker I cant stop laughing !
>>25463521Actually, I don't mind it either, it's us not realising the consequences of this until too late.Still, nobody expected Elsa to just jump him like that so soon.
>>25463543>it's us not realising the consequences of this until too late that I'm annoyed about.fixed.
>>25463543I kind of did. Mean she frenched the dude behind bars. If she impresses him enough I would expect her to jump on him then try to drag him somewhere else for a while. I'm just amused none of us thought about Heloise though while she gave hints I don't think Jager would expect her to take a hit this hard.
>>25463593We got double crits.Double crits that were preceded by a freaking critfail.I think it was pretty unexpected.
>>25463593I specifically brought up Heloise before the whole thing took off in the last thread and /tg/'s response was basically "she lacks initiative and the situation with Elsa is just more interesting and fun." /tg/ is just having some very delayed regret, now.
>>25463629Welcome to /tg/ where nobody thinks ahead. Ever.
>>25463629We probably didn't think it would escalate so quickly to intercourse. We were just hoping to see some Else x Alek moments, not baby making sessions.
>>25463629To be fair, I doubt anybody expected their relationship to progress this quickly.I mean, crits everywhere.
>>25463653So true to a stupid extent. It's all fun and games until the guy's routelocked.
>>25463629Hey bro, chillax. You have basically gone into "I told ya so!" mode. Yes, some people didn't realize what might have happened. Don't lord it over them. Be a better man than that.
Come on guys,lay off.
>>25463629Honestly stuff like this happens all the time so I'm wondering why the regret. Just give it time.
What's done is done. Dice god has made us roll 20s and we have to live with that outcome.
>>25463653I am not in I told ya so mode. Or at least I don't mean to be. I was just pointing out that Heloise was brought up and that we wanted to go through with it anyway. Basically I was trying to say that /tg/ didn't just rush ahead without considering the consequences, but that they stayed the course and risked those consequences. It's just now that we've hit those consequences we're regretting it because making Heloise sad is still a pretty shitty feeling no matter what.
>>25463773Woops. Meant to quote >>25463674
And now we're into auto-sage because of this stupid shit.
>>25463773How often do you expect triple criticals in a row?
Did MC die or is he basking in the... I don't even know what to call it.
>>25463794We'll be fine. We're still on page zero.
>>25463773Let me put it this way: Just shut up about it already! Seriously. Just wait patiently for Merc.
>>25463805He's not planefag so I doubt he's drinking the readers' tears.
>>25463808We wouldn't even be in auto-sage if people would just learn to drop it instead of repeating the same crap over and over again.
>>25463804The dice did nothing but speed up what we chose can everyone please stop talking about this already?
>>25463805Merc is a cool dude,man.
>>25463819You don't understand GMs very well don't you?
>>25463834We were looking for shenanigans, not instant routelock.
>bitch bitch bitch bitchThat's all I've been seeing. Can we please stop this?
>>25463804wasn't it first three roll? that makes two crits and a 6.
>>25463827/tg/ is about the slowest board ever. So we still have upwards of 5-6 hours or more of time.>>25463853Kind of the opposite for me. But anyway patiently waiting.
>>25463875We got a critfail on Elsa as well.
>>25463896>/tg/ is about the slowest board ever. So we still have upwards of 5-6 hours or more of time.Missing the point...
>>25463853yeah, definitely looking for that to hapen
>>25463819YOU FOOL DO NOT SUMMON HIM!
>>25463164You decide to stay quiet and let Heloise vent her concerns. Best that you don't interrupt her."Y'know... I'm kinda jealous of Alek and Elsa...." Heloise mumbles. "Well... not them specifically, but what they've got..."It's just not fair... y'know? All my friends, Coleen, Lynn, Mags... and now Alek, t-they've all got someone.... but not meeeeeeeeee. No, poor l-little Heloise has gotta be forever alooooneeee..."B-but, it's not like I'm angry a-at Alek or anything. I-I'm happy he's got s-someone he can be happy with..."At his point Heloise starts nodding off. If you want to say anything, now's the time.>Well?
>>25463937Whatever happened with him. Strike Witches just kinda vanished all the sudden (At least from what I know).
>>25463957"You may not remember this when you wake up, but there will always be someone for you in the Demons."
So to sum everything up. No one expected things with Elsa to progress so quickly but most aren't upset over it BUT we are upset over making Heloise feel bad.Can we move on now?
>>25463957>''you will find someone too,Heloise. Don't worry.''
>>25463957"How about Brilliant? He's a nice chap."
>>25463964He took a break to do a tohou quest he'll finish up strike witches sometime this summer
>>25463964this summer....you cant escape the bouncing(he will be back this summer)
>>25463957>Apologies for the delay i got kinda distracted by something.
>>25463957"I'm sure you'll find someone, Heloise."Keep it simple.
>>25463957You're a beatiful girl Heloise, You'll find someone, but remember not to settle, not for anything, make sure you've found the right person before you decide.
>>25463986No. No more matchmaking. Ever.
>>25463986Can we fucking not?This is basically twisting the knife.
>>25463957>"I'm sure you'll find someone, Heloise. There's a few guys that would like a woman like you"
>>25463957>"You will find someone, Heloise."
>>25463957Hmm... I. Damn.Well, since she's straightforwardly going "Aww, I'm happy for my friends, but I wish I could have what they got, too!" we can't just go "But you have friends!" to counter it.Because its not about not having friends. But rather not being as... fortunate as her friends..Well. Jager could sympathize, to a degree, I imagine... Given that HIS situation was even more shittier...Just not sure what to say, though.
>>25464010You don't know how happy this makes me.
>>25463957My inner demons ask me to fan the flames and say something like "You know, Elsa's an aggressive one, but maybe you can get Alek to notice you if you try harder."But... something tells me that would actually end up fucking the team up somehow... So let's just go with helping her get over it.
>>25463957"You're a fine woman Heloise, you'll find a great guy eventually."
>>25464013Yeah let's cut out the matchmaking now. It's not the time for that.It'd be a dick move to try to make any sort of move now and this is from someone who thinks she'd nice match with Jager
>>25463957"Heloise, I know a little bit about love, it's unpredictable, weird, crazy, and sometimes catches on fire, but it's one of the best things in the world.It's not something you predict or plan for, it'll happen for you Heloise, just be patient and when you see an opportunity, grab it. Until then though, you've got plenty of people who care for you in the Demons."
>>25463957"Relationships aren't all there cracked up to be trust me..."
>>25463957"Hey now don't be like that, you're still young and a smart and sickly sweet girl like yourself shouldn't have trouble finding someone. Just be a bit more forward, I mean you don't have trouble with other people. For now get some sleep, we'll talk more in the morning, also don't blame me when you wake up. Seirously you and your cocktails"
>>25464048>catches firebiggest understatement of the year
>>25464048She's drunk. Can we not be verbose again?
>>25464010This.Only Alek interested me anyway, and this incident majorly soured what little matchmaking drive I had left.
>>25464048+1 Well said
>>25464048Seconding. This is very nice.
>>25464086There shouldn't have even been any matchmaking crap in the first place. But that rant has been done before.
>>25464048>sometimes catches on fireThis does seem to be a recurring theme for us, doesn't it...One of these days, something will REALLY catch on fire, rather than just us speculating on that climactic-duel-on-top-of-a-burning-tank-etc-etc thing.
>>25463957Desire to waifu. Rising. Must resist. Anyway.Thinking we should tell her that there is plenty of people out their for her. She will find someone eventually and mention that he is always around for one of the demons.This is going to hit him hard.
I really doubt that verbose speech will filter through the drunken haze that she's in.
>>25464048I disagree with this from standpoint of Jagar isn't sure what to think of Karla or what happen. Truthfully he's the last person that should be giving advice about this stuff considering what's happen.
>>25464129This why I said to keep it simple. >>25464000
>>25464124I'm resisting the urge to make a move with this as it's not the time for that.Though later on when she's sober....
>>25464132This if anything I think he'd be a bit jaded about relationships given how his last one ended.
>>25464132Well before it all caught on fire it was pretty nice, then it all caught on fire and kinda stopped being as good. But from an objective point of view it's pretty uncommon to go out with someone and then they get ordered to kill you.And just because you suck at something doesn't mean you can't give out advice.
>>25464174>And just because you suck at something doesn't mean you can't give out advice.That's what means... if you're terrible at something you don't go around trying to help people with it.
>>25464162It hasn't really ended for him though, the last interaction he and Karla had was a kiss. it may end in tears , but as of yet it's unresolved and will remain so until he and Karla have it out.
>>25464220Hard to say really as there's mixed feelings involved
>>25464220I'd say that it's, in the words of Miracle Max, "Only mostly dead."
>>25463957You'd be lying if you said that you weren't trying to think up of a long, beautifully worded speech to get Heloise's spirits up. But then you remember that she's still pretty damn drunk and might not really understand what you're saying. Hell, she might not even remember this night at all."I'm sure you'll find someone, Heloise." You say simply and firmly."Thanks... Captain...means a lot.. to hear... you... say... that..." Heloise begins nodding off, and a soft snoring sound signifies she's finally fallen asleep."Poor girl." Elizabeth frowns. "I really hope she does find somebody.""Or maybe it'll be the other way around." You shrug. "Like a friend told me earlier, love's a flower that can bloom anywhere.""I never took you as a romantic, Captain.""I'm not."You walk the rest of the way back to the barracks in silence. Elizabeth helps you tuck Heloise in bed before leaving to help Qyburn brainstorm some more inventions. If that's her idea of fun, well, she was already a pretty odd girl.Checking the hour, as well as your own stamina, you decide to get some sleep. Thankfully it's dreamless this time, and you wake up at a reasonable hour this time.>Let's go find Sam.>Let's go find Tarin>Let's check up on Heloise first.>Other
>>25464275>>Let's go find Sam.
>>25464275>>Let's check up on Heloise first.
>>25464275>Let's go find TarinHangovers are a bitch. Give her sometime.
>Let's check up on Heloise first.Let's see how the poor girl's doing.
>>25464275>Let's check up on Heloise first.Then>Let's go find Tarin
>>25464275>>Let's check up on Heloise first.>>Let's go find Tarin in that order
>>25464275>Let's go find Sam.Time to meet our bother Sam quota.
>Let's check up on Heloise first.>Let's go find Tarin
>>25464275>Let's check up on Heloise first.>Let's go find Tarin
>>25464236That's why it's "unresolved" I'm not saying Jager is carrying a torch for her (though I am a Karlafag) I'm just saying that until he has it out with her, until he gets some closure, he's still not going to be jaded or searching for a new romance.
>>25464275>Let's check up on Heloise first.
>>25464251Kind of feel Jager has very mixed feelings on her. Like to the point to where when we get to her I'm going to flip a coin and decide his reactions on that.
>>25464275>"I never took you as a romantic, Captain.">"I'm not."HE LIES!>Let's check up on Heloise first.
>>25464325That's kinda funny that is exactly what I was going to do.
>>25464275>Check our drunk chipmunk
>>25464325While he has mixed feelings I'd like to think while he wants some resolution, the bridge that symbolized their relationship will never get rebuild. There's a difference between merely serving on an opposing side and leading an attack on your family home.
>>25464476I also agree. However, if we find more information, then I'll consider something else.
>>25464476I as well, unless the circumstances seem that they would particularly sway him one way or another. For example, if she literally tells him to kill her, because she doesn't want to live with how she hurt him, I could see Jager deciding that no, he won't kill her. Now, whether he would take her back in that situation, that would still be up to the coin.
>>25464275You decide to go check on Heloise first. After all, she was in a pretty bad shape last night. The least you could do was to see if she was still okay.You find Heloise, and a couple other Demons, in the mess hall cradling a large cup of coffee. She's obviously hungover and still tired, but you notice that she's got her regular smile."Hey, Heloise, I heard you kind of went overboard last night." You say, trying to stay vague. "How're you feeling right now?""Tired... but oddly happy, like I got a weight off my chest." Heloise shrugs. "I don't even remember what happened last night.">Good. Let's keep it that way.>Are you sure you don't remember?>Other
>>25464522>Good. Let's keep it that way.
>>25464522>>Good. Let's keep it that way.
>>25464522>>Good. Let's keep it that way.let's just leave her to mend her wounds for now.
>>25464522>Good. Let's keep it that way.The less said the better.
>>25464522>Good, Let's keep it that way.>Remind her that if she has any problems, she can come and see him.Hopefully these won't conflict as the second could come off as nice reminder.
>>25464497I inda feel that the attack on his home was a show of exactly how much Karla loved Jager, she was the supreme commander of the Imperial forces, she could have been anywhere else, and in fact should never have been anywhere near there, but because it was Jagers home, the home of the person she loved, she couldn't let anyone else lead the attack.Which may be reading too much into it, but Jager would certainly understand that.
>>25464552Kind of like this.
>>25464555Woah man, that's pretty deep. If I were Merc, I'd be like "... Yeah, that was exactly what was meant." I think you're reading too much into it, but I like it nonetheless.
>>25464555I think he'd be less offended by her merely serving them elsewhere than her leading an attack. The fact we have yet ot hear anything about Jager's family suggests they died in the attack.I don't think it'd be something just overlooked by either of them as Karla seems to be feeling some guilt about it. While they may still love each other, I doubt they'd be able to rekindle their relationship that easily if at all.That is barring his family magically popping up saying "we're alright"
>>25464552change my vote to this
>>25464555I just thought of something.What if Karla's "secret project" she mentioned to Schnee involves her hiding a good portion of the Sturmfuhrer family somewhere deep inside Belka, where nobody from the main body of the Empire can find them, perhaps in one of the Hohenzollerns' vacation homes?
>>25464616pure speculation until more proof appears.
>>25464639More like "wild speculation with little basis in anything other than the fact that the VC universe tends to be rather optimistic in tone"
>>25464659Isn't that pretty much the same.
>>25464616That is what I was thinking. Also wasn't it implied that the council had forced her to do two really big things to appease the imps?
>>25464522You decide not to bring up the issue from last night. It seems like Heloise has gotten over that little stumbling block without even realizing it."Well, I think it's great that you're feeling better." You give a friendly grin. "Look, if you got any problems or are feeling down or anything, you can always talk to me.""Thanks, I'll keep that in mind." Heloise smiles.You then decide to track down Tarin. You're honestly curious to see how she spends her free time. Well, to be more fair, you're not doing much tracking, it's more like "letting Tarin know you're looking for her and SHE tracks you down"."Oh, hey there, Tarin." You say as you feel a very familiar presence behind you."Looking for me, sir?" Tarin asks.>Do you do that to everybody you talk to?>What exactly do you do when you have weekend pass?>Hey Tarin, let's go do something that uhh... normal people do!>Other
>>25464845>Do you do that to everybody you talk to?"Or am I just special?"

>>25464845>>Do you do that to everybody you talk to?>What exactly do you do when you have weekend pass?
>>25464845>>What exactly do you do when you have weekend pass?I had originally planned to see how she would react to Alek's escapade, but after Heliose wound up getting hammered over it, I think I'm just going to leave off.
>>25464845>>What exactly do you do when you have weekend pass?
>>25464845>What exactly do you do when you have weekend pass?So tracking Tarin is kinda like tracking The Major?
>>25464845>What exactly do you do when you have weekend pass?Maybe she shadows people for practice.
>>25464845"You know, Tarin, I've always wondered. What exactly do you do when you get a weekend pass? I don't see you out with the other Demons. In fact... I don't really see you around at all.""Oh, I usually just keep my skills sharp." Tarin shrugs. "I practice stalking targets.""Whoa, you're not like, murdering people in the middle of the night in every city we visit, do you?""Only to those people who deserve it." Tarin says flatly. There's an awkward silence before she continues, "I was joking, sir.""Sorry, it's a bit hard to tell with you sometimes." You sigh. "I didn't even know you were capable of joking.""I've been practicing.""Uh huh.">So, are you planning on doing more stalking tonight?>Stalker no stalking! We do something NORMAL today!>Other
>>25465047>>So, are you planning on doing more stalking tonight?just curious
>>25465047>>So, are you planning on doing more stalking tonight?And who?
>>25465047>So, are you planning on doing more stalking tonight?
>>25465074Second. Tarin is a strange creature worth investigating
>>25465047>Stalker no stalking! We do something NORMAL today!Like... like... like...Um...
>>25465047>So, are you planning on doing any more stalking tonight?Jager needs to learn the art of Tactical Espionage.
>>25465047>So, are you planning on doing more stalking tonight?As long as she's having fun and not causing trouble for anyone I got no issues with it.
>>25465047>>So, are you planning on doing more stalking tonight?
>>25465119Oh, tell her Qyburn has a new weapon for her!
>>25465047>Stalker no stalking! We do something NORMAL today!Let's try bowling! Assassins love bowling, right?
>>25465127Oh shit this. Let's hit the range!
>>25465047>>Stalker no stalking! We do something NORMAL today!For normality!
>>25465127I'll throw in my vote too
>>25465047>>OtherTHE SILENCED GUN!!!
>>25465127Also supported, I wish to see her squee.
>>25465127Werent we planning on giving it to Brilliant?
>>25465215That's what I thought since Tarin does the whole CQC thing for stealth most of the time.
>>25465047>Stalker no stalking! We do something NORMAL today!
>>25465215We can give Brilliant the second one Qyburn makes
>>25465047>>Stalker no stalking! We do something NORMAL today!I'm a bit bummed right now, but I wish for amusement nevertheless.
>>25465215Tarin needs to sneak attack shit, so she should get the quiet gun IMO.
>>25465215Meh, he can have the second.
>>25465258I'm not sure if she'd rather have a gun compared to a knife or sneaking suit
>>25465258But Tarin is already a CQC goddess. Brilliant has more need of it.
>>25465047>>Stalker no stalking! We do something NORMAL today!I suppose I need something to brighten my night up.Apart from eventually sleeping.
>>25465278>gun compared to a knifeWe need to duct tape a fairbairne syske to the end of the DeLisle

>>25465370Tarin + Catsuit = Win
>>25465340I only realized the sexy part after I typed that, I was thinking more practical use than sex appeal.
>>25465403then you're doing it wrong
>>25465047"No stalking today!" You say, lightly karate chopping Tarin's head. "We're going to have you do something NORMAL for once!"To her credit, Tarin doesn't even react to being mildly physically assaulted by you. "Do you have any suggestions, then, sir?" She asks.>Hey, we're in an oceanside city! There's bound to be something to do on shore!>Actually, I just got this shiny new rifle from Qyburn...>Other
>>25465418>>Actually, I just got this shiny new rifle from Qyburn...better to get first evaluations and testing out of the way now, rather than have it catastrophically fail mid-battle

>>25465418>Actually, I just got this shiny new rifle from Qyburn...Cause testing out new military hardware is totally what normal people do.

>>25465448it can't be beach episode yet, we haven't bouch swimsuits for the girls yet
>>25465418Hrmmm Beach scene... Or De Lisle carbine.WHAT TO DO.How about... Attempt boat insertion then operate operationally with Gallian Q
>>25465418>Actually, I just got this shiny new rifle from Qyburn...This is clearly Jager's normal
>>25465418>Hey, we're in an oceanside city! There's bound to be something to do on shore!Might as well have some fun. Pretty sure shit is going to hit the fan here soon enough.
>>25465418>>Actually, I just got this shiny new rifle from Qyburn...Dat picture.
>>25465418no, wait, >Show her the shiny riflethen>take her to the beach
>>25465418>>Actually, I just got this shiny new rifle from Qyburn...Because clearly this is normal.
>>25465500seconding because I can't choose
>>25465500Why not shoot the rifle while at the beach?
>>25465517that's kind of what I had in mind. However, the problem would be that people would see the new weapon and then try to replicate it.
Er, honestly, the beach doesn't sound a good place to shoot the rifle.Do it at a gun range or something.
>>25465539I'm sure a silenced rifle is already on everyone's to do list already not exactly a revolutionary idea.
>>25465567But do really need to be going, basically, showing it off?
>>25465627To who? the "thriving " tourist community? or the invisible ninjas constantly around us that can only be stops with tinfoil?
>>25465648>be stopsMeant stopped
>>25465648Talk spreads fast when you're dealing with something nobody has seen before. Question get asked. Ones we don't want to answer.
>>25465674So we don't answer?
>>25465648Taking chances is never wise, even if it seems perfectly safe. (Which is the case this time)
>>25465691Do you really think people will let that slide when were talking about a new weapon...
>>25465705Who are these people the Empire? our employers a secret society of lizard men hell bent on world domination?
>>25465705seeing as the only ones who'd know the details would be rather too dead to talk about it to anyone else....
>>25465722First one that comes to mind would be our Employers.
>>25465742Truthfully I'm kinda surprised we haven't been questioned about the Buzzbomb.
>>25465418"Actually, I got his shiny new rifle from Qyburn." You say. "Apparently he's claiming that it's almost silent, but I haven't had a chance actually test-""Silent?"You suddenly realize that Tarin's face is now literally inches from yours. Despite being slightly shorter than you are, it does nothing to lessen the intensity of her stare."Show me.""Whoa, hold up there." You say, trying to back away. Apparently this was what Tarin was like when she was excited. "Just give me a little space first!"As you walk to the armor to retrieve the Gallian-Q, you are acutely aware of Tarin closely tailing you. She's not even bothering to hide the fact that she's there either. It's like her stare was literally glued to the back of your head.Finally, you remove the Gallian-Q from its secure locker and hand it over to Tarin, who tries to hide it, but you can tell she's marveling over the rifle, carefully going over every detail and nook and cranny of it. It's odd. The closest equivalent you can think of is a cat batting away at a ball of yarn.>Let her enjoy the moment.>Suggest to go test it out.>Other
>>25465722>put a "?" after employers.>>25465742oh yes the people who are desperate for our help, they sure won't tolerate us having a corporate secret or two.
>>25465761>Suggest to go test it out.
>>25465761>>Suggest to go test it out.in action
>>25465761>Let her enjoy the moment.And when it becomes clear she isn't stopping anytime soon.>Suggest to go test it out.
>>25465761>Let her enjoy the moment.>>25465766If they feel strong enough about it they wouldn't consider the lost all to great. After all you can always get more mercs but tech is a pain to come by.
>>25465761>>Let her enjoy the moment
>>25465766If you see something cool, you want it. Is that not true? And when you have something that could potentially change war itself, you get even worse. I'm not even one of those "tin foil hatters", just someone who works in the corporate world. You don't show off your new product, less someone else try to copy it.
>>25465802More mercs sure, but mercs with a track record like ours? Look I don't even care about the beach dude can we just knock it off with the tinfoil and the jumping at our own shadows over nothing?
>>25465761>>Suggest to go test it out.
>>25465761>Let her enjoy the moment.Also resist the urge to snicker, barely. Try to keep a straight face.
>>25465761>Let her enjoy the moment.
>>25465761>>Let her enjoy the moment.
>>25465761You stand back and let her enjoy the moment as she admires the rifle."It's an interesting design." She says. "Definitely looks like something Qyburn would design.""If you want, it's yours." You say."Really?!" Tarin says just a bit too quickly and loudly. She blinks and her cheeks redden ever so slightly."Of course!" You laugh. "What makes you think I wouldn't give it to you?""I was j-just making sure." Tarin says quickly. "Can we shoot it? Please? Right now?""Hey, it's your rifle." You shrug. You blink and all of a sudden she's gone.Wondering just how the hell she moves like that, you go to the one place where you would be guaranteed to find her: the firing range. Sure enough, Tarin is already set up there. She gives the rifle several shots, though you could swear that if you weren't looking right at it, you would never realize a gun was being fired."Amazing." Tarin mutters.>Challenge her to a shootoff. See how good she is with that rifle.>Ask her if you can give the rifle a try.>Other
>>25466117Forgot mah pic.
>>25466117>>Challenge her to a shootoff. See how good she is with that rifle.
>>25466117"So beyond the word amazing... How is it?"After that see if can't get a crack firing it.
>>25466117>>Challenge her to a shootoff. See how good she is with that rifle.and bring Alek along, too.
>>25466117>Challenge her to a shootoff. See how good she is with that rifle.
>>25466117>Ask her if you can give the rifle a try.>Implying she'll ever give this rifle to somebody else nowShe'll probably sleep with the dam thing.
>>25466117>>Challenge her to a shootoff. See how good she is with that rifle.Time to shoot like you want to win.>you could swear that if you weren't looking right at it, you would never realize a gun was being fired.Ha. Reminds me of the webcomic The Last Days of Foxhound. Sniper Wolf shows off her sniping skills -->"There's the target.">"Where, I can't see it?">"Exactly."*mimes aiming and shooting>"... I didn't even hear anything?">"Exactly.">"Whoa that's awesome!"Later, after Liquid leaves...>>"Did you really pull off that shot?">>"What, you want me to waste a bullet?"
>>25466260The De Lisle was an astoundingly quiet riflehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsUALdGog4U
>>25466117"Okay, how about a challenge?" You say with a devious grin. "Let's have a shoot off. See which one of us is the better shot.""I've just gotten this rifle. I'm not that used to it firing it yet." Tarin points out."Don't worry, I'll use a regular Gallian-1. I haven't shot one since basic, so we'll be even!""Alright..." Tarin says.>Start shooting.>Hey, no challenge is complete without stakes! Let's bet something! [specify]>Other
>>25466318Huh, I was just reminiscing over an old webcomic but... Wow that really is a very quiet rifle.It really IS a case of "You can only tell its firing if you're looking carefully at it."
>>25466360>Start shooting.This is just for fun. Keep it that way.
>>25466360>Hey, no challenge is complete without stakes! Let's bet something! [specify]Loser has to do one thing that the winner says.
>>25466360>>Hey, no challenge is complete without stakes! Let's bet something! [specify]Strip shooting. Hell yeah.On a more serious note, the loser has to do any one thing that the winner says.

>>25466436crap, i didn't think that through
>>25466436Not like this we don't.
>>25466464I don't think I want to give orders in such a way, then.If we *must* bet something, let's stick to food or maybe a bar tab or something like >>25466406 suggested.
>>25466481>stick to food or maybe a bar tab or something like >>25466406 suggested.If you people must have a bet then please be one of those
Tempted to make the bet."If I win you have to act like a fawning girlfriend for about 2 minutes when we see the demons next time."Just for the amusing image of Tarin trying to smile holding jagers arm all the while every single one of the squad does a "the fuck?" face.
>>25466522I'll just say it now, even as a joke or not.No.
>>25466406this one actually makes sense
Rolled 13, 9, 18, 2, 5 = 47>>25466360"Hey, how about we up the stakes?" You grin. "Loser has to pay the winner's next three meals.""Okay." Tarin shrugs.So, with rifles in hand, both of you take aim...>roll 5d20

>>25466680SMG, what's acc?
>>25466637well the creds we got from our bet with Alek will be spent paying for the food.
>>25466697That would be hilarious. The rifle we were using was actually a well disguised smg and we just sprayed the target with bullets.
>>25466620"Ah man, my rifle skills are really lacking." You sigh. Tarin's shooting wasn't quite perfect either, but she certainly did a hell of a lot better than you did, and she was the clear winner of your little contest."Well, might as well starting paying off my debt." You sigh. "Come on, lunch is on me. What do you feel like?""Well...can't we just go back to the mess hall?">Well, sure. (Less money for me to pay.)>That won't do, Tarin.

>>25466846Hey, thats proper safe storage, nothing wrong with that
>>25466720Well... this was surprising. Then again, you probably shouldn't be surprised that somebody as socially stunted as Tarin would fail to see the point in taken full advantage of bets."You do realize I'm paying for the meal in question, right? Come on! Pick something better than that! Wait, unless... oh god... do you really like the mess hall stuff?""What's wrong with the mess all food?"

>>25466896HAHA! TIME FOR A DATE
>>25466896We stare at her for a moment, our noble upbringing coming to the forefront as we gaze in horror at the uncultured being before us.>>You're damn right it is! It's time for us to go find the most ridiculous restaurant we can find!
>>25466950I can totally see Jager not realizing that this is a date until Sam ask how our date was.
>>25466950>DATENot a date, an education.
>>25466896>You're damn right it is! It's time for us to go find the most ridiculous restaurant we can find!Do not let her say no, if she says no we are picking her up, throwing her over our shoulder, and taking her out to a fancy dinner. She doesn't get a say in this.
>>25466896"You're damn right it is!" You say, extremely miffed. "It's time for us to go find the most ridiculously expensive restaurant we can find!""I-Is that really necessary, sir?" Tarin blinks."Tarin, a life lived only eating field rations and mess hall slop is a life sorely wasted. You say.Fortunately, you know a few places that the officers love frequenting, mostly thanks to your constant meetings with Freyberg, which have taken place at the dinner table as often as they did in the war room. >The Olive Grove. An extremely popular and constantly populated.>Buccas. Known for its extremely large portions. A bit less popular but still rather busy.>Gina's: A small, family run restaurant. Fairly small and obscure.
>>25467041>Gina's: A small, family run restaurant. Fairly small and obscure.Let's keep Tarin out of crowds, but a nice quiet cozy restaurant with good food, perfect for our totally not a date.
>>25467041>>Gina's: A small, family run restaurant. Fairly small and obscureonly because i frequent that place in real life.
>>25467041>Gina's: A small, family run restaurant. Fairly small and obscure.
>>25467041>Buccas. Known for its extremely large portions. A bit less popular but still rather busy.For some reason I get this feeling we'll need the larger portions with Tarin.
>>25467041Gina's sounds good.
>>25467041>>Gina's: A small, family run restaurant. Fairly small and obscure.She would probably prefer less people around.
>>25467041>Buccas. Known for its extremely large portions. A bit less popular but still rather busy.
>>25467041Keep it small.
>>25467041Bucas, oh man, that place. Their definition of 'small' is enough for two people.
>>25467041>>Gina's: A small, family run restaurant. Fairly small and obscure.
>>25467041>Gina's: A small, family run restaurant. Fairly small and obscure
>>25467076I like that about them. Then I get to take some home for later.
>>25467041You ultimately decide on Gina's. It's not quite as well known as the other places, and you're honestly not sure how Freyberg knew about it, but apparently it's popularity relied heavily on word of mouth. You believe that would be the best place to take Tarin to. It was quieter and more isolated, which seemed to be the type of environment she preferred. You shudder to think how she'd react to the crowds at the other locations.There was one other problem though...>She needs to look the part! She needs something nicer looking!>Eh, it's not that big a deal.>Other
We still owe her for two more meals, so just start small with this one.
>>25467104>>Eh, it's not that big a deal.

>>25467104>Eh, it's not that big a deal.I'd like to see them turn away the guys who saved over a hundred civilians from the Imps.
>>25467104She needs to look the part.Always in the mess likely means she's never had free time like this, never socialized, she need to break the habit.
>>25467104>Eh no big dealTHIS IS ABOUT THE TRAVESTY OF FIELD RATIONS.But also because this is a family run place, I don't think they care.

To dress up or not to dress up these are the real hard hitting questions that bring out the lurkers
I like to say. I love the spamming of the votes, now of all times.
>>25467233Obviously the most important thing we've done all quest.
>>25467200I see a red door and I want to paint it black.
>>25467104>>She needs to look the part! She needs something nicer looking!Too weak to go on goodnight
>>25467237I like to think that there are just a lot of people who lurk and don't post until a heated decision is called for, and that nobody would be so vain as to samefag a quest.I am also a delusional idealist.
>>25467260>I am also a delusional idealist.Yes. Yes you are.
>>25467104>She needs to look the part! She needs something nicer looking!Probably the hardest decision I'll make for the day.
>She needs to look the part! She needs something nicer looking!Eh get her a scarf or something.Being mercenaries do we even have a uniform?
>She needs to look the part! She needs something nicer looking!>Not excessively so
>>25467254No colors anymore, I want them to turn black
>>25467260That kind of person is more common than you'd think.I rarely vote on anything important, I'd rather just read along.
>>25467268Given how small our band of misfits is I wouldn't think so.
>>25467294Then we must look into a dress uniforms! Can't be going around in BDUs all the time.
>>25467301I'd rather stay as far away from a dress uniform as possible shits uncomfortable.
>>25467301Hey, sooner or later some country may even want to have us around for a celebration and give out minor decorations instead of chasing us out, and wouldn't we be oh so embarrassed to not have something snazzy to dress up in s a unit?
>>25467268Given we're mercs? Not likely. If anything, the only semblance of a standardized uniform we'd have would be a unit patch.
>>25467314Depends on the dress uniform we're talking about. Some aren't /that/ bad. Most (read army) are.
>>25467340I'm actually quite a fan of the WWII army dress uniform. Those were actually pretty comfortable.
>>25467340that's actually inaccurate. Some dress uniforms aren't bad, most (read issued to enlisted as a no size fits any human known) aren't tailored and thus uncomfortable as hell.
>>25467328pretty much this, It would be very out of character for the demons to hand anything resembling dress blues, they aint those kind of mercs
>>25467104You briefly consider having Tarin change up her wardrobe, but you ultimately decide against it. You're already going far outside her comfort zone, so no need to make it worse.Getting to Gina's is a bit of a chore, having to navigate through a bunch of side streets and alleys in order to reach. However, Tarin doesn't seem to mind. Scarily enough, she navigates the lesser known paths with a frightening amount of familiarity."I've been through here several times before." Tarin shrugs.Lunch itself is rather uneventful. The family that runs Gina's are very tolerant, and don't mind serving Darcsens, which more than you can say for several other places in this city. You order several dishes, trying to vary them as much as possible so Tarin can get the full experience.Tarin's reaction to the food is borderline adorable. She gives it a thorough inspection, as if she's afraid an Imperial will suddenly burst out of the plate and start shooting. She cautiously spears a a piece of ravioli and slips it into her mouth. You then see her eyes light up in shock."It's good, isn't it?" You grin.Tarin nods rapidly."My my, it seems your girlfriend is certainly enjoying the food." The elderly matron who runs the restaurant smiles as she passes by.Wait, did she just say-Then an ugly feeling forms in your stomach. You have just realized that you have inadvertently gone on out on a date with Tarin."Tarin.""Yes?" Tarin says between mouthfuls. "You can never speak of this to ANYONE. Got it? Not even to the other Demons.""Roger." Tarin says, without question.By the end, you're slightly regretting your decisions, both due to your wallet and to your self image. However, you believe it's all worth it to show Tarin a little more of the world she never got to enjoy."Thanks for the meal." Tarin nods to you. "It was very educational.""Yeah, and you got two more. Don't forget.""I won't, sir."(cont)
>>25467365And like that, Tarin disappears, off to do whatever she does when nobody is observing her.Well, at that's left now is Sam. Likewise, she's not too hard to find. She's in the office, sorting out the Demons' mail."Heeeeeeey Sam!" You say, entering the room."Oh, hey there, Cap!" Sam looks up. "Just taking care of some mail and last minute paperwork.">Oh, okay. What are you working on?>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!>Other
>>25467389>>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!
>>25467365>You have just realized that you have inadvertently gone on out on a date with Tarin.Ha!>>25467389>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!Though she is most likely the reason why things work around here.
>>25467389>>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!Order Ramirez to finish the paperwork.
>>25467365>"I won't, sir."No she won't.And we will never live it down if the others find out about this.>>25467389>>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!Whelp.
>>25467389>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!We're on a date marathon, it looks like
>>25467389>Oh, okay. What are you working on?Time to help with paperwork awwww yeah
>>25467389>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!>inb4 inevitable rant about how much work it takes to run a merc unit
>>25467389>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!"Sam, as your commanding officer I am giving you an order.Have some fun!"
>>25467389>>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!You can work later, fun times now, my only regret is I did not discover you working in secret sooner so I could have interrupted it then.
>>25467389>>OtherAny letters from Artya?
>>25467389>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!inb4 we bring her out for lunch as well
>>25467400>Ramirez>paperworkIts like you want the building to burn down.first he'll try shooting it.Then a grenade.Finally he'll use his underslung flamethrower ad torch everything this ending the paperwork menace.
>>25467389>>Oh, okay. What are you working on?

>>25467389>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!
>>25467433>Pissing against the tide.

>>25467445Sleep? our studies have proven it a mere myth, a disgusting fabrication of simpler times.
>>25467445not sure how much longer I can stay awake
>>25467430And then we bring Isolde out for lunch.>yfw fat!Jaeger because too many lunch dates
>>25467464We'll work off the pounds by fist fighting more Belkan knights.

>Wait, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING?! UNACCEPTABLE!>>25467464I though Heloise would be next.

>>25467474psh, this quest is nothing, I used to follow Lord quest, fucker was run by an aussiefag, there were days when I wouldn't get to sleep till 11:00 am.
>>25467490so how long did you stay up for? 30 or so hours?
>>25467464Speaking of Isolde, I got some more images of her.Yes, I'm the guy who wrote up her sheet.
>>2546751023, however I only got about 2 hours of sleep a day between that and being dragged off to various friends houses all the time.
>>25467464Not fat, just bulking.
>>25467526how long did this quest last?
OKAY GUYS,I'M BACK AFTER NAPPING FOR 3 HOURS!
>>25467389"Wait a minute, it's the weekend, and you're WORKING!? UNACCEPTABLE!"You then physically pick up Sam and carry her out of the office."Ah! Cap! What are you doing?!" Sam gasps."You can work later, fun times now." You say determinedly. "My only regret is I did not discover you working in secret sooner so I could have interrupted it then.""B-but the paperwork!""I'll tell Ramirez to finish it.""But he'll just make it WORSE!" She wails."Nonsense." You say. "Besides, it's our last day of leave and I don't remember seeing you take any time off whatsoever!""Somebody help meeeeee!" Sam cries."YOU WILL IGNORE HER PATHETIC PLEAS FOR HELP." You bellow for the whole base to hear. "It's time for FUN, Sam. And by god, you will enjoy it!"And so the evening starts off with you carrying a girl off base over your shoulder against her will. Surely this is a sign that this day will end well.>And that's it for tonight! Tune in on Sunday night, 6-7pm PST for the conclusion of the R&R events, and maybe some side story content!
>>25467550Hah the irony, oh well!
>>25467550>And so the evening starts off with you carrying a girl off base over your shoulder against her will. Surely this is a sign that this day will end well.Oh Jager.
